    Hello,

    Just registered in this forum, but have had a VPN for some time and with no problems. However, now when I login into webmail and try to connect through Horde I get:
    ---------------------
    A fatal error has occurred
    Could not connect to database for SQL SessionHandler.
    Details have been logged for the administrator.
    ---------------------

    SquirrelMail is however OK.

    Does anybody else has this problem?

    Any suggestion most appreciated.

    Check for quotas on the cpanelhorde user and remove them if they exist. Also check the permissions on /var/cpanel/userhomes/cpanelhorde

    I noticed there are 2 users for horde.
    cpanelhorde
    cpanel-horde

    Which one is proper, and could there be some inconsistency in the code somewhere?

    The cpanel user names with the - are old. We original created those before detecting that some of the user names would be too long (cpanel-phpmyadmin), which caused problems. We then switched to using the non - versions.

    so, it would be ok if we deleted all files owned by cpanel-horde?
